Dear Friend: 

Information included in this publication will provide a foundation for making sound 
production, marketing and policy decisions which affect Florida agriculture. Informed decision 
making is needed at all levels to ensure a viable and productive future for our agricultural 
mdustries. It also helps assure consumers of adequate food supplies at reasonable prices. 

Agriculture is a vital 6 billion dollar industry in Florida's economy. Domestic and foreign 
production is an increasing source of competition for our state's producers. The $1.4 billion fruit 
and vegetable segment must maintain high productivity and efficiency levels to meet these 
challenges. 

These statistics were compiled through the cooperation of the Rorida Department of 
Agriculture and Consumer Services and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This and other 
timely publications would not be possible without the assistance of thousands of producers who 
voluntarily contributed their time to accumulate and provide us with the basic data from which 
these official estimates were prepared. I extend my sincere appreciation to all who have 
participated in this important effort. 



Sincerely, 

BOB CRAWFORD 
COMMISSIONER OF AGRICULTURE

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS 

The acreage, production, and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and USDA estimates 
prepared by the Florida Agricultural Statistics Service. Extended commodity coverage and county and area 
detail were made possible through the participation of the Department of Food and Resource Economics, 
University of Florida, in the estimating program. The Bureau of State Farmers' Markets, Florida Department 
of Agriculture, and the County Extension Agents of the Cooperative Extension Service were also very 
helpful in supplying area and county information. Shipment statistics were provided by the Market News 
Section of the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. 

Growers, shippers, and processors volunteered most of the basic data used in developing these 
statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these individuals and groups is appreciated. Grower 
organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the season. These groups include 
Florida Tomato Committee, Florida Sweet Corn Exchange, and the Zellwood Sweet Corn Exchange. Sales 
agencies and transportation firms provided additional data. 

Field personnel A.J. Wilson, Parrish; E.J. Hutchins, Deerfield Beach; Charles Robertson, Homestead; 
Carl Ouzts, Orlando; and Robert McClelland of Immokalee collected much of the basic acreage and 
production data in this bulletin. This report was assembled by Wade Adams, Shirley Zonner, and Bernie 
Albrecht of the Florida Agricultural Statistics Service, and H.B. Buchanan, Market News Section. The 
authors also wish to thank Marcelo Diaz, Kitty Hildreth, Pat Quittence, Iris Solis, and others of the Florida 
Agricultural Statistics Service who assisted in compiling and preparing this report.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPS-State level estimates for most 
crops are estimated on a six month seasonal basis. 
These statistics are published in January. The periods are 
for the crop year July through December and January 
through June. The two six month periods were combined 
in this publication into a crop year total for all crops. 
Production sold or utilized is shown by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which has 
been planted for harvest during the crop year. Acreage 
lost and replanted to the same crop in time for harvest in 
the same quarter is counted only once. Acreage har- 
vested and planted again to the same crop is counted 
twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially or 
completely harvested. Acreage lost before or at maturity 
through natural or economic causes is not included in the 
acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production per harvested acre 
of merchantable quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested and 
sold or utilized. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equivalent 
price received, f.o.b. shipping point basis and encompas- 
ses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. Included are 
packing charges, selling charges, precooling, top ice, or 
other costs which contribute to the value of the product 
at shipping point. The value per unit for quantities sold to 
processors is the average value paid for usable quantities, 
on a "delivered to plant door" basis. This value includes 
transportation and other normal costs incident to delivery 
at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of production 
sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullage and 



other quantities not sold or utilized because of natural or 
economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for all 
counties for which either published data would result in 
the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals 
for specific commodities are of minor importance in the 
State. 

All shipments and unloads, rail , truck , air , and boat , 
are recorded nationally in 10,000 pound units each day. 
Annual releases are in 1,000 cwt. In this publication, 
shipments and unloads for some commodities were 
converted to most common trading units. Rail and piggy- 
back weights and conversion factors were determined by 
several Market News Service field offices. Mixed car (rail) 
loadings by stations have been prorated by commodities. 

Where possible, the national Market News Service in 
Washington, D. C. has established a single uniform 
weight per commodity to be used nationally in converting 
to weight units for the various means of transportation. 
Weights per common container used and number of units 
per rail car or truck may be obtained by writing Federal- 
State Market News, 775 Warner Lane, Orlando, Florida 
32803. 

PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT -The official USDA 
vegetable crop estimates are published on a weight basis. 
For this bulletin, the official estimates for most vegetable 
crops have been converted to what is believed to be the 
most commonly used containers. If changes in container 
weights are necessary, all data pertaining to the produc- 
tion of the commodity in question are revised to maintain 
comparability between years. The table below gives the 
net weight used per container and the number of contain- 
ers per hundredweight for Florida produce.

SUMMARY OF THE 1994-95 SEASON 



The value of vegetables, watermelons, potatoes, 
and berries produced in Florida during the 1994-95 
season totaled $1 .48 billion, down five percent or $80.9 
million from the 1993-94 value of $1.56 billion. All 
values of production declined except for carrots, 
endive/escarole, watermelons, and strawberries. Tropical 
Storm Gordon passing over the State around mid- 
November, and freezes during February lowered acreage 
harvested, yield and production for most crops estimated. 
The total 1 994-95 acreage harvested of 356,800 acres, 
dropped four and a half percent or 1 6,729 acres from the 
previous season acreage of 373,529 acres. Only the area 
harvested for snap beans, cucumbers, and strawberries 
showed increases from the 1993-94 season. 

Production declined for all of the fifteen major 
crops with 1994-95 published estimates, except 
cucumbers. Cabbage production, at 191.5 million pounds 
for the 1994-95 crop, fell 35 percent or 102.6 million 
pounds below the 294.1 million pounds produced in 
1993-94. Bell pepper production declined 223.0 million 
pounds from 663.6 million pounds picked in 1993-94, to 
440.6 million pounds harvested during 1994-95. Squash 
production at 132.0 million pounds in 1994-95 declined 
59.1 million pounds or 31 percent from the 191 .1 million 
pounds picked during 1993-94. The average yield per 
harvested acre was higher than the previous season for 
carrots, sweet corn, endive/escarole, tomatoes, and 
watermelons. The remaining ten commercial crops with 
published estimates showed lower yield averages than 
realized during 1 993-94. 

Lower supplies led to higher prices during 1 994- 
95 with only snap beans, cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, 
and potatoes showing price declines from the previous 
season. The average price of endive/escarole more than 
doubled from the $20.80 per one hundred pounds (cwt) 
averaged during the 1 993-94 season, to the $44.40 per 
cwt averaged during 1994-95. The carrot price averaged 
$21 .10 per cwt for the 1994-95 season, up $8.40 per 
cwt or 66 percent from the 1 993-94 price of $1 2.70 per 
cwt. Squash prices averaged $31.60 per cwt in 1994- 
95, up $9.00 or 39 percent from the previous season's 
price of $22.60 per cwt. Bell pepper prices at $42.90 per 
cwt for the 1994-95 crop showed an increase of $9.80 
per cwt or 30 percent over the 1 993-94 average price 
of $33.10 per cwt. 

Acreage planted to vegetables, watermelons, 
potatoes, and strawberries during the 1 994-95 season 
totaled 379,150 acres, down two percent from the 
388,539 acres planted during the 1993-94 season. 
Producers showed increased 1 994-95 plantings for snap 
beans, cucumbers, and strawberries. 



WEATHER HIGHLIGHTS 

Cool, rainy conditions delayed field preparation 
and fall crop planting in both northern and southern 
regions during late July and most of August. Tropical 
Storm Beryl formed in the northeast section of the Gulf of 
Mexico in mid-August. This storm dropped from one to 
six inches of rain over some West Central localities and 
around the Quincy area. Northern, East Coast, and West 
Central growers began fall crop planting in late July. 
Southwestern producers started fall crop planting in early 
August. Zellwood growers began planting during late 
August. Everglades producers began planting during the 
last half of August. Scattered showers with locally heavy 
amounts of rain falling disrupted planting progress in 
many areas during most of September and October. 
Northern and East Coast producers started fall crop 
harvesting during late September. Picking of fall crops 
gained momentum in the Zellwood and West Central 
regions during early October, and started during the last 
half of the month in the Southwest and Dade County. 
Warmer, drier weather during most of November in- 
creased planting and harvesting. Most northern growers 
finished harvesting by mid-November. Strong winds from 
Tropical Storm Gordon tossed vines, blew some blooms 
off plants, and scarred fruit in all southern and most 
Central areas about mid-November. Heavy rains gener- 
ated by the storm flooded fields in the southeastern 
region and Dade County with significant acreage losses 
reported. Balmy temperatures and mostly clear skies 
during late November and early December aided the 
recovery of most plants from the storm damage. Strong 
winds from early December storms lowered yield pros- 
pects of some East Coast fields. Temperatures near 
freezing arrived in northern areas about mid-December. 
Strong winds and heavy rain from late December storms 
slowed fieldwork and damaged some crops in southern 
areas, especially around Lake Okeechobee. Drier condi- 
tions and above average temperatures during most of 
January boosted crop development and accelerated 
harvesting. Temperatures dipped into the 30s in some 
central localities in early January, but caused no signifi- 
cant crop damage. Planting, which was delayed by 
Tropical Storm Gordon, caused some supply gaps in Dade 
County and some southeastern localities during January. 
In early January, Dade County and southeastern growers 
began picking acreage planted after the mid-November 
storm. Cold temperatures during late January slowed 
most fruit development and caused some leaves to burn 
on plants in unprotected fields. Freezing temperatures and 
strong winds during the second week of February se- 



2 



verely damaged spring crop plantings in the West Central 
and Southwest regions with growers replanting most of 
the affected acreage during late February. Most East 
Coast fields were protected by windbreaks or freeze 
covers. Strawberry growers around Plant City picked 
most marketable strawberries before the early February 
strong winds and cold temperatures arrived and ran 
overhead sprinklers to form ice caps on plants to protect 
plants from freezing temperatures. Warm temperatures 
over central and southern areas during late February and 
most of March aided the recovery of crops from the 
adverse weather. About mid-March, freezing tempera- 
tures followed by some rain storms damaged early 
tomato plantings and delayed some planting around 
Quincy. Sunny, clearer weather during late March and 
early April accelerated the harvest of spring crops over 
the southern Peninsula and planting in northern areas. 
Growers along the southeastern coast finished most 
spring crop transplanting in early April. Planting was 
almost completed in most northern areas before mid- 
April. Some labor shortages became a problem in a few 
southeastern localities as workers moved north about 
mid-month. Dry weather after mid-April depleted soil 
moisture supplies over most of the southern Peninsula 
and in most northern production areas. Some producers 
curtailed harvest and abandoned some acreage due to 
low markets that developed during late April and early 
May. Scattered rains during the last week of April and 
into early May boosted the growth of southern Peninsula 
crops but delayed some harvesting. Dry conditions 
continued over the northern region during early May. 
Harvest reached peak levels throughout May to meet the 
Memorial Day demand although some growers delayed 
picking due to the low market. Southern and central area 
producers began to open fields to U-Pic after mid-May. 
Hot temperatures, almost daily showers, and low markets 
brought most harvesting to an end in Dade County and 
around Immokalee in late May. Clear, hot weather during 
late May over northern localities allowed harvest to 
advance rapidly. Rainfall from Hurricane Allison, which 
developed in early June, caused most southern Peninsula 
growers to complete harvest and interrupted most 
northern picking. The rain from the storm was beneficial 
by replenishing topsoil moisture supplies that had become 
quite short in some northern counties. Hot temperatures 
and dry soils reduced sweet corn yield prospects around 
Zellwood in early-to-mid June. Near mid-June, overcast 
skies kept temperatures cool. A tropical disturbance 
brought heavy rains to the southern Peninsula and some 
northern localities during late June. These rains inter- 
rupted sweet corn picking in central areas and water- 
melon harvesting in some northern localities. The Quincy 
region escaped the heavy rainfall with tomato picking 
progressing normally. 



SNAP BEANS 

Growers produced 4.2 million bushels of snap 
beans for fresh market during the 1 994-95 season, down 
five percent from the 4.4 million bushels produced last 
season. Harvested acreage at 30,500 acres for the 
1994-95 season was an increase of 5,000 acres over last 
season. The 1 994-95 yield of 1 39 bushels per acre was 
35 bushels less than a year earlier. The f.o.b. price of 
$11 .97 per bushel was 66 cents below the 1 993-94 price 
of $12.63 and $2.88 below the 1992-93 record price of 
$14.85. The value of the 1 994-95 crop at $50.6 million 
dropped 10 percent below the previous season's value of 
$56.0 million. 

Bush beans are grown in most areas of the State. 
The southeastern area, mainly Dade and Palm Beach 
counties, continued as the major production area. Pole 
beans are grown primarily in Dade County with a small 
amount grown in some northern counties. 

Central and northern area producers began 
planting their fall crop during late summer. Dade County 
and Southwest started planting in early September. East 
Coast started planting in mid-September. Northern crop 
harvest started in late September. Harvesting in the 
southern areas started in late October. The late season 
tropical storm, Gordon, damaged the southern fall and 
winter bean crop. The storm dropped from 1 to more 
than 7 inches of rain in central and southern Peninsula 
during the week ending November 20. Some fields were 
flooded and others washed out. Bloom loss and scarring 
were also problems in many areas. The surviving crop 
slowly recovered from the damage. The northern part of 
the State got very little rain from this storm. The north- 
ern harvest ended in late November. West Central bean 
harvest ended in late December. Cold winds on the 
morning of January 25 burned the top leaves of unpro- 
tected fields in south Florida. Plant growth was slowed 
by the cold weather. In early February cold winds caused 
some light leaf burn and blowing sand damage. The 
southern area spring crop planting was completed by 
early March. Planting of the spring crop in the West 
Central areas started in very late February and was 
completed by mid-March with harvest active during April 
and May. The northern spring bean crop planting started 
in March with harvest being active from mid-April through 
early June. Commercial bean harvest was completed in 
all areas by mid-June. 

BLUEBERRIES 

The acreage of blueberries harvested in 1 994-95 
was 1,300 acres, the same as last year. Production was 
an estimated 2,500,000 pounds, with an average yield 



3 



per acre of 1,920 pounds. The value per pound was 
$2.02 and the total value of the crop was $5,050,000. 
Harvesting of blueberries occurs between mid-April and 
early June. The majority of the acreage is in northern 
counties of the Peninsula with significant production also 
in Hardee, Hillsborough, and Manatee counties, as well as 
in the Panhandle. Both fresh use and processing blueber- 
ries are produced. 

CABBAGE 

Cabbage growers In Florida produced 3.8 million 
crates and bags of cabbage during the 1 994-95 season, 
down 35 percent from the previous season. The gross 
value of sales was $17.4 million, down 44 percent from 
a year earlier. The season average price was $4.54, 
down 76 cents from the 1993-94 season. Planted 
acreage totaled 7,400 acres, down 2,500 acres from a 
year earlier and continuing a trend that started in the mid 
80s. Harvested acreage amounted to 7,000 acres, down 
2,300 acres from the previous year and the lowest since 
the 1 934-35 season. The average yield of 547 crates per 
acre was down 85 crates from the previous year. The 
east and west central areas lead the State's production, 
accounting for 42 percent of the State during the 1 994- 
95 season. Manatee County, for the seventh consecutive 
year, was the leading cabbage producing county with 
2,800 acres. 

Planting was underway by mid-September in the 
central area and by late September in the Hastings area. 
Planting in the west central area started in early October. 
Dade County planting started in early November. Winds 
from the late season Tropical Storm Gordon buffeted very 
young plants and flooded some fields in the Hastings 
area. The fields lost to Gordon were replanted. Harvest- 
ing of the crop started in December with good volume 
starting in January. There was no significant damage 
from the cold temperatures on January 25. Harvest was 
complete in Dade County by early May and in the north- 
ern areas by mid-June. 

CARROTS 

Growers produced 72,800,000 pounds of carrots 
during the 1994-95 season, down 18 percent from the 
previous season's 88,600,000 pounds. Harvested area 
totaled 5,600 acres, down 2,100 acres from the 1 994-95 
season. Virtually all carrots were grown in the central 
area during the 1994-95 season. The value of carrots 
sold was $15.4 million up 37 percent from the $11.3 
million producers received for the previous season's crop. 
The average farm gate price was $2.1 1 per pound, up 8^^ 



cents from the $1.27 per pound averaged in 1993-94. 
Most monthly prices averaged between $2.01 and $2.52 
per pound, except for the $1.69 growers received in 
February. This compared with the 1 993-94 monthly price 
range of $1.08 to $1.54. Almost half of the 1994-95 
crop was sold in February and March 1995. 

Planting became very active in September. Wet 
weather during the last half of September, and heavy 
rainfall caused by Tropical Storm Gordon in late Novem- 
ber prevented germination of some seedings around Lake 
Apopka with most acreage replanted. Digging started 
about mid-December. Cold temperatures and strong 
winds in early to mid-February lightiy singed the tops of 
plants near Zellwood with little losses occurring. By early 
March and through early April, yield averaged 60 to 70 
percent below normal in some fields because of the 
excessive fall rains. Growers juiced some culls to make 
up for yield losses. Yield improved during April and May 
with digging completed by late June. 

SWEET CORN 

Value of the 1 994-95 sweet corn crop totaled 
$105,311,000, four percent below the record high of 
$109,258,000 for the 1993-94 crop. Production at 
1 1 ,51 1,000 42-pound crates fell 12 percent below the 
previous season's 13,091,000 crates. Florida continues 
as the Nation's leader in the production of fresh market 
sweet corn. The value per crate averaged a record high 
$9.15, 80 cents above the 1993-94 average of $8.35 per 
crate, and 50 cents above the previous record high of 
$8.65 attained during the 1992-93 season. Growers 
received record high prices during December, February, 
and May. Prices during 1 994-95 ranged from the Febru- 
ary high of $18.77 per crate to the July low of $6.01. 
Growers planted 39,600 acres during 1994-95 and 
harvested 36,900. This is the lowest planted acreage 
since the 1952-53 season when producers planted 
34,900 acres, and the lowest harvested acreage since 
1960-61 when 33,900 acres were picked. 

North Florida growers started planting fall acreage 
in early August and Zellwood producers began planting 
after mid-August. Growers around Lake Okeechobee 
were planting by early October. Abundant rain during 
September in central and southern localities reduced ear 
sizes in some fields and delayed fieldwork. Growers 
around Zellwood and in northern areas started picking by 
late September. Drier weather during early October along 
the southeastern coast allowed planting to gain speed. 
Producers in the Everglades region started picking by 
early November. Northern producers harvested virtually 
all acreage by mid-November. Heavy rain generated by 
Tropical Storm Gordon, passing during the week ending 



4 



November 20, flooded some fields around the Zellwood, 
Lake Okeechobee, and East Coast regions, and in Dade 
County. Strong winds accompanying the storm whipped 
and laid over older plants. Most damage from the storm 
was the loss of recent seedings due to flooding with 
producers replanting most of this lost acreage. Dade 
County reported at least 35 percent of the winter crop 
acreage was lost and reseeded. Most older plants 
recovered although Everglades growers abandoned some 
acreage due to reduced ear quality. Dade growers 
planted some corn on lost potato acreage. Zellwood 
producers finished picking in early December. East Coast 
growers began harvesting around mid-December. Strong 
winds from a late December storm blew down plants in 
the East Coast and Dade County areas with some stalks 
broken off in a few southeastern fields. Although 
copious rain fell around Lake Okeechobee, most corn 
acreage was not affected by the adverse weather. 
Cooler temperatures during late December and early 
January slowed crop development in some southern 
regions. Producers in Dade and western Palm Beach 
counties started picking fields in late January that they 
planted after Tropical Storm Gordon passed. Cooler 
temperatures slowed crop development in the East Coast 
area during early February. Freezing temperatures 
accompanied by strong winds arrived in southern locali- 
ties about mid-February. The cold winds burned some 
leaves on plants around Lake Okeechobee with most 
acreage recuperating. Zellwood producers started spring 
crop planting around mid-February. Picking in Dade and 
western Palm Beach counties and in the East Coast 
region gained momentum in late February and early 
March. Planting in northern Peninsula localities became 
active in late March and early April. Zellwood growers 
finished planting around mid to late April with harvest 
underway by the end of the month. Dade County produc- 
ers finished commercial harvesting by mid-May while 
growers along the southeastern coast completed picking 
during the last half of May. Northern Peninsula producers 
commenced harvesting during the last week of May. 
Everglades' growers concluded picking in early June. Hot 
temperatures over central and northern fields reduced 
yield prospects during June. Zellwood and Everglades' 
producers finished commercial picking by early July. 



CUCUMBERS 

Fresh market cucumber production totaled 5.7 
million bushels during 1994-95, two percent above the 
5.5 million bushels harvested during the 1993-94 season. 
A reduced yield, from 489 to 429 55-pound bushels per 
acre caused the drop in production since acreage har- 



vested in 1994-95 at 13,200 acres was 1,900 acres 
higher than the 1 1 ,300 acres picked during the previous 
season. The 1994-95 yield is the lowest since the 
average of 385 bushels during the 1 987-88 season. The 
value of the 1994-95 crop fell 21 percent below the 
previous season, from $54.0 million in 1 993-94 to $42.6 
million for the 1994-95 crop. The price received by 
growers during 1994-95 averaged $7.53 per bushel, 
$2.24 below the $9.77 per bushel received for the 1 993- 
94 crop. Growers marketed over half of the crop during 
April and May 1995. Growers in the East Coast region 
harvested 40 percent of the State's acreage with 33 
percent of the total acreage located in Palm Beach 
County. 

Seedings became active in the East Coast and 
West Central regions during mid to late August. Heavy 
rains delayed planting around Wauchula during Septem- 
ber. Harvesting began by early October in the Wauchula 
and Palmetto-Ruskin areas. Southwestern growers 
started harvesting around mid-October. East Coast 
producers began picking during the last half of October. 
Northern growers marketed some European types in late 
October with picking of all types virtually finished by mid- 
November. Strong winds generated by Tropical Storm 
Gordon singed leaves, and broke off leaves and stems in 
some East Coast localities during mid to late November. 
Southwestern and southeastern growers marketed most 
storm damaged fruit from the last half of November into 
early December. Strong winds tossed vines in the East 
Coast area during the last half of December. Cold winds 
burned young leaves in some southwestern fields during 
early January. West Central producers began spring crop 
planting after mid-January with all acreage killed by 
freezing temperatures in early February. Southwestern 
growers suffered heavy losses from these cold tempera- 
tures. Most East Coast fields escaped damage due to 
crop covers. Some unprotected plants in southeastern 
fields that were at the two to three leaf stage of growth 
when the cold temperatures arrived, recovered. Some 
young acreage in the Southwest also recovered from the 
freeze. By late February, growers in the Palmetto-Ruskin 
area were replanting lost acreage in addition to scheduled 
planting. Plants in the North Central region began to 
emerge in early to mid-March. Southwestern and West 
Central producers virtually completed spring crop planting 
by late March. Strong winds tossed plants in the East 
Coast region on March 11 and 12. Southwestern and 
East Coast growers began harvesting acreage planted 
after the early February freeze during late March. Milder 
weather during late March and early April aided the 
recovery of plants from earlier adverse weather along the 
southeastern coast. Growers in the Palmetto-Ruskin area 
began spring crop picking by early April. A low market in 
April caused southwestern producers to turn harvest of 



5 



the oldest fields over to pinhookers. Picking became 
active in the North Central region by early May. Hot 
temperatures and the low market brought the East Coast 
and Southwest harvest to an end during the last half of 
May. Palmetto-Ruskin growers opened some acreage to 
U-Pic harvesting in late May with commercial picking 
continuing through the first half of June. 

EGGPLANT 

Eggplant production during the 1 994-95 season 
totaled 1 ,500,000 bushels. This was down 25 percent 
from the 2,001,000 bushels harvested during the 1993- 
94 season. Fall production was down 52 percent from 
the fall 1993 crop, while the combined winter and spring 
crops were down 1 percent from the amount harvested 
during January through June 1 994. Yield averaged 652 
bushels per acre, 182 bushels less than the previous 
season's yield. Acres harvested totaled 2,300 compared 
with 2,400 acres harvested the previous season. The 
value of production at $13,500,000 declined 28 percent 
from the 1993-94 value of $18,717,000. The price 
growers received for the 1994-95 crop averaged $9.00 
per bushel, $0.35 per bushel lower than the previous 
season average price of $9.35. The Southeast continued 
to dominate eggplant production with 68 percent of the 
crop, or 1,014,000 bushels produced in the area. 

Planting began in the East Coast areas in early 
August with harvest underway in late September and 
early October, Storms during November and December 
caused significant wind, rain, and sand damage to the 
plants in most areas. Good quality fruit continued to be 
shipped, but gradeout was high due to much scarred, 
misshapen fruit. Cool temperatures hurt the crop in the 
early new year, impeding growth and development. 
Quality and volume improved with the spring weather and 
harvesting was completed by late June. Overall yields 
were low. 



ESCAROLE-ENDIVE 

Escarole and endive production during the 1 994- 
95 season set a record low for the sixth consecutive 
season with 999,000 crates harvested, down 1 2 percent 
from the previous season's production and previous low 
of 1,136,000 crates. Although the yield at a record high 
624 crates per acre averaged 42 percent of 1 87 crates 
higher than the 1993-94 yield of 437 crates, acreage 
harvested at 1 ,600 acres dropped to the lowest record 
for the tenth consecutive season, and was 62 percent or 
1 ,000 acres less than the 2,600 acres cut last season. 
The average price growers received at $1 1 .07 per crate 



increased to a new record high and was $5.87 above the 
1993-94 average of $5.20 due to the lower supplies. 
The previous record high price was the $6.65 averaged 
during the 1981-82 season. Total value of the 1994-95 
crop at a record high $1 1 ,057,000 showed an 85 percent 
increase from the previous season's value of $5,991 ,000. 

Escarole and endive grows mainly in two areas of 
muck soils, the Central area which is located northeast of 
Lake Apopka near Zellwood, and the Everglades area 
located around the southeast side of Lake Okeechobee. 

Planting became active during September. Heavy 
fall rainfall caused some acreage abandonment and 
reduced yields. Zellwood growers began the harvesting 
in late October with only light supplies available in late 
January and no picking during most of February. Ever- 
glades growers started cutting by mid-November. Strong 
winds and blowing sand damaged some leaves during 
early February in both regions. Growers discarded scarred 
leaves prior to marketing during late February that 
reduced acreage yields. Milder weather beginning in late 
February aided the recovery of plants from the earlier 
adverse weather that increased yields. Picking of the late 
winter crop started around Zeilwood in late February. 
Hot temperatures brought the season to an end by mid- 
June. 



BELL PEPPERS 

The 1994-95 Bell pepper production totaled 15.7 
million bushels, 34 percent below the previous season's 
record high production of 23.7 million bushels. The 
Southeast region accounted for 43 percent of production, 
followed by the Southwest with 27 percent, and the 
West Central area with 22 percent. The West, North, 
North Central, and East Central areas made up the 
remaining eight percent. Acreage picked during the 
1 994-95 season totaled 20,300 acres, five percent or 
1,100 acres below the record high 21,400 acres har- 
vested during the 1993-94 season. Growers picked an 
average of 775 bushels per acre during the 1994-95 
season, 332 bushels below the record high yield of 1,107 
bushels averaged last season. Winds accompanying 
Tropical Storm Gordon during November blew blooms off 
plants and increased fruit drop which caused a lower fall 
crop yield. Strong winds that accompanied the early 
February freeze again caused lower yields for the winter 
and spring crops. The 1 994-95 yield is the fourth highest 
of record and continues to reflect the use of new, higher 
yielding varieties. Producers received an average of 
$12.01 per bushel in 1994-95, $2.73 higher than the 
$9.28 grower averaged during 1993-94. The 1994-95 
price was the second highest of record and was only 
eight cents below the record high price of $12.09 per 



6 



bushel obtained for the 1990-91 crop. The value of the 
1994-95 crop totaled $188,938,000, 14 percent below 
the record high value of $219,838,000 attained during 
the 1993-94 season. However, the total value of the 
1994-95 crop is the third highest of record. Prices stayed 
above ten dollars during all months except May, which 
reflected the short supplies caused by adverse weather. 
The November and December prices reached new record 
highs of $12.81 and $12.39 per bushel, respectively. 

Planting became active in the East Coast region 
by late July and progressed well in the Southwest, 
Palmetto-Ruskin, and northern areas during August and 
most of September. Producers in the West Central area 
finished fall crop planting by early October. East Coast 
growers started fall crop harvesting in early October. 
Abundant rain falling throughout September and most of 
October reduced yield prospects in some southwestern 
fields. Palmetto-Ruskin growers began picking around 
mid-October and producers in the Immokalee area started 
harvesting during the last half of October. Northern 
growers picked fields throughout October and into early 
November with most picking finished by mid-November. 
Producers in most southern localities picked marketable 
fruit prior to the passage of Tropical Storm Gordon. 
Strong wind from this storm caused some leaves to burn 
and some blooms and leaves to drop from plants in fields 
located in southeastern and southwestern areas and in 
Dade County. The Palmetto-Ruskin region escaped 
significant storm damages. Mostly mild weather during 
late November and most of December allowed fields to 
recover from the adverse weather. Dade County growers 
began harvesting during the first half of January. 
Palmetto-Ruskin producers started spring crop planting in 
late January. Cold temperatures in late January caused 
only minor damage to fields located in Dade County and 
the Southwest. Strong winds hampered the placement 
of covers over East Coast fields for protection from 
freezing temperatures during early February. Southwest- 
ern fields showed only light damage from the early 
February freeze. Palmetto-Ruskin growers suffered up to 
thirty percent or more loss of acreage due to these 
freezing temperatures with virtually all affected fields 
replanted by early March. Sumter County producers 
virtually finished spring crop transplanting by mid-March. 
Mostly mild weather during March and April boosted crop 
growth and fruit development in southern and northern 
fields. Growers in Wauchula and Palmetto-Ruskin began 
spring crop picking by mid to late April. Hot tempera- 
tures during late April and most of May damaged fruit not 
protected by foliage canopies in some southeastern and 
southwestern fields. Dade County producers finished 
harvesting by mid-May. Some southwestern growers 
delayed picking because of the low market during May. 
Harvest Increased in northern areas during late May. 



Southwestern producers ended picking by early June and 
Palmetto-Ruskin producers finished by mid-June. North- 
ern growers continued picking a light volume into July. 

POTATOES 

Potato production in Florida during 1995, includ- 
ing both winter and spring, totaled 8.96 million cwt. This 
was 10 percent less than the 1994 crop. A total of 
46,800 acres were planted for harvest in 1 995, 2 percent 
less than the previous year. Out of this total 42,900 
acres were dug, 8 percent less than 1 994. The value of 
the crop was placed at $84.0 million, down 29 percent 
from the previous year. The price received for all pota- 
toes averaged $9.40 per cwt compared with $11 .90 in 
1994. The yield for all potatoes was 210 cwt per acre, 
down 5 cwt from the previous year. 

The first winter potatoes were planted in the 
southwest area around mid-October and in Dade County 
in late October. Rains from Tropical Storm Gordon in late 
November flooded the potato fields in Dade County and 
killed the crop planted at that time. About one-third of 
Dade County potatoes had been planted by that time. All 
the destroyed acreage was replanted. A small acreage 
was damaged in the southwest and had to be replanted. 
Planting ended in the southwest in mid-December and in 
Dade County in mid-January. Harvest in the southwest 
was underway by mid-February. Harvest in Dade County 
started In mid-March which was later than normal due to 
the lost early plantings in late November. There was no 
major damage to the winter potato crop from the Febru- 
ary freeze. Winter potato harvest was complete by mid- 
May. 

In the Hastings area, the largest area of potato 
production in Florida, planting was underway the first 
week of January and was complete by mid-March. The 
late February freeze set back the early potato crop in the 
Hastings area. Harvesting In the Hastings area started In 
late April and was complete by late June. 

In the other spring production areas, planting 
started In late November and continued Into March. The 
west central area potatoes were hurt by the February 
freeze. Harvesting of the other spring crop started in late 
March and continued Into June. 

The "red-skinned" varieties are the dominant 
potatoes grown for winter harvest in south Florida. Most 
of the winter crop is sold for table stock. In the Hastings 
and the other spring areas, the "white-skinned" varieties 
dominate. Most of the production goes to the potato 
chip Industry. The Hastings production is used to pro- 
duce the Memorial Day chips.

RADISHES 

Production of radishes in Florida totaled 4 million 
cartons in 1 994-95, down 1 5 percent from the previous 
season. (A carton of radishes is 1 5 pounds). This is the 
lowest production of record starting with the 1965-66 
season. The area for harvest was 15,700 acres, down 
10 percent from last season. This is also the lowest 
acreage of record. The yield was 256 cartons per acre, 
down 17 cartons from 1993-94. The average season 
value per carton was $5.94, up 50 cents from last 
season. The value of annual production was $23.87 
million, down 8 percent from the previous season. 

Seedings for the 1 994-95 crop were underway by 
early September in the central/Zellwood and Everglades 
areas. Harvest started in the central area in early Octo- 
ber and in late October in the Everglades area. Late 
season tropical storm Gordon flooded fields which 
stopped planting and harvesting during the week ending 
November 20. The acreage of destroyed radishes was 
replanted. Planting and harvesting were occasionally 
delayed by wet weather during the remainder of the 
season. Cold temperatures in late January and February 
damaged some young fields which were replanted. 
Harvesting in the Everglades area was complete in early 
June and by the end of June in the central area. 

SQUASH 

The harvested area of squash in the 1994-95 
season was 1 1 ,900 acres, down 1 ,400 acres from the 
previous season. Production reached 3.14 million 
bushels, down 31 percent from last season. (A bushel of 
squash equals 42 pounds.) The yield was 264 bushels 
per acre, down 78 bushels from the 1993-94 season. 
Shipments to out-of-State markets had two peaks, a fall 
season peak in December and a spring season peak in 
April. The average price for the season was $13.27 per 
bushel, up $3.77 from last season. The total value of the 
crop was $41 .69 million, down 4 percent from the 1 993- 
94 season. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crook- 
neck, yellow straightneck, white, and zucchini squash. 
The southeast region accounted for 46 percent of the 
State's production, with the southwest producing 24 
percent of the State total. 

Planting of the fall crop was mostly complete by 
early September in the central production areas. In Dade 
County, planting was active by the end of the month. 
Harvest of the summer varieties was active by early 
October. Harvest of the winter varieties started in the 
northern areas in late October and finished in mid-Novem- 
ber. Harvest of the summer varieties (yellow and zuc- 



chini varieties) was complete in the southern regions in 
mid-May and in the North by the end of June. 

Late season Tropical Storm Gordon damaged the 
plants, scarred the fruit, and caused heavy bloom loss to 
the southern crop. Cold winds in late January burned 
leaves on the southern crop. A freeze in early February 
killed the west central crop and severely damaged some 
fields in the southwest. There was leaf burn in Dade 
County and in the East Coast areas where plants were 
not protected. Replanting of lost fields was underway by 
mid-February. No major weather problems occurred after 
the February freeze. 

STRAWBERRIES 

Production of strawberries reached 1 4,000,000 
flats in the 1994-95 season down slightly from the 
1 4,01 7,000 flats in the 1 993-94 season. Area harvested 
was 6,000 acres, 200 acres more than the previous year. 
Yield was 2,333 flats per acre, down from the 2,417 
flats per acre last year. (A flat of strawberries equals 1 2 
pounds.) The value of the 1 994-95 strawberry crop was 
$118,608,000 up 17 percent from the 1993-94 crop. 
The price per flat at $8.47 was up sharply from the 
1993-94 price of $7.24 per flat. 

The major production area continues to be in 
Hillsborough County, centered in the Plant City-Dover 
area. A significant amount of U-Pic acreage is grown in 
Dade County and the East Coast area. Planting began in 
late September and was completed by the beginning of 
November. Major varieties were Oso Grande, Selva, and 
Sweet Charlie. Harvesting started in late November, 
peaked in March, and continued into May. 

TOMATOES 

The value of the 1 994-95 fresh market tomato 
crop totaled $461,369 million, down $6,172 million or 
one percent from the 1993-94 value of $467,541 
million. Although acreage harvested at 49,000 acres 
decreased by 1,600 acres from the 50,600 acres picked 
the previous season, yield per acre rose by 1 7 cartons, 
from 1,294 cartons per acre for the 1993-94 crop to 
1,31 1 cartons in 1994-95. The value per carton at $7.18, 
f. o. b. basis, was four cents higher than the $7.14 per 
carton growers received for the 1993-94 crop. Prices 
during 1994-95 ranged from a low of $3.58 per carton 
averaged during May, to a high of $10.40 per carton 
averaged during January. Prices increased in late Novem- 
ber through most of January due to the short supplies 
caused by damages from Tropical Storm Gordon passing 
over the State on November 14, 15, and 16. 



8 



Producers in the Quincy area started transplanting 
fall crop acreage in mid to late July while growers in the 
Palmetto-Ruskin and East Coast regions began planting 
during the first week of August. Southwestern producers 
commenced plantings by mid-August. Tropical Storm 
Beryl dumped over six inches of rain on northern fields 
during the week of August 15 through 21 but did not 
affect the condition of the crop. The youngest acreage 
along the southeastern coast started blooming by late 
August. Plant growth reached the second tie in the oldest 
fields by early September with plants holding fruit up to 
three inches in diameter. Dade County growers started 
making beds for the laying of plastic in early September. 
Frequent rains throughout September caused no signifi- 
cant damage to the crop, but interrupted field work as 
picking began in the north and slowed the laying of 
plastic in Dade County at the end of the month. Heavy 
showers on October 1 and 2 flooded some fields near 
Quincy and damaged some fruit nearing maturity. This 
early October rainfall blew some blooms off plants in the 
Southwest. Fruit about the size of tennis balls appeared 
on plants in the East Coast region by early October as 
Dade County producers began transplanting. Northern 
growers ended first picks and began second picks about 
mid-October. Dade County producers seeded some 
acreage due to a shortage of transplants about mid- 
October. Adequate plant foliage lessened the occurrence 
of rain checks caused by wet weather during the first half 
of October on the skins of the first pickings in the North. 
Harvesting started in the Southwest, Palmetto-Ruskin, 
Sumter County, and East Coast areas during the last half 
of October. The abundant rain during September and the 
first half of October reduced the yield prospects for the 
first and some second picks in many southern Peninsula 
fields. Drier weather during the last half of October 
accelerated harvesting with 75 percent of the crop picked 
from northern fields by the first of November. Blooms 
appeared in the oldest Dade County fields by early 
November. Above normal temperatures during the first 
half of November boosted fruit development in southern 
Peninsula fields. Dade County growers laid plastic in the 
Frog Pond area for late transplanting during the first half 
of November. Northern producers harvested about 95 
percent of production by mid-November. In November, 
wind gusts from Tropical Storm Gordon, clocked at 20 to 
60 miles per hour, tossed foliage, blew blooms off plants 
and flung sand that scarred fruit in all southern and most 
central localities. Heavy rain accompanying the storm 
flooded some fields in Dade County and the Southwest. 
Acreage around Palmetto-Ruskin escaped the heavy 
rainfall, but wind damaged some foliage and fruit in 
unprotected areas. In the East Coast regions, the storm's 
wind snapped some transplants off at the first tie and the 
weight of fruit nearing maturity toppled stakes and plants 



in some blocks. Flooding killed some plants in low lying 
areas of Dade County. A strong market, following the 
passage of the storm, prompted a few Palmetto-Ruskin 
and northern producers to make extra picks. However, 
the arrival of 30 degree temperatures around Quincy 
during late November brought picking of northern fields 
to an end. Above average temperatures and mostly dry 
conditions during late November and early December 
helped plants to recover from the storm damage. The 
milder weather allowed plants along the southeastern 
coast, which snapped off during the storm, to develop 
succor growth. However, some older fields in the East 
Coast region did not have enough marketable green fruit 
for a third pick due to increased fruit drop and a high 
percentage of pink and scarred fruit caused by Tropical 
Storm Gordon. Dade County growers started harvesting 
in early December. Heavy rains and strong wind in early 
December, and again after mid-month, lowered yield 
prospects in many southern Peninsula fields. In late 
December Palmetto-Ruskin workers started laying plastic 
for spring crop transplanting. Warm, mostly dry weather 
during January sped plant growth and fruit development 
over the southern Peninsula. Some Palmetto-Ruskin 
producers continued making extra picks into late January 
as the strong market continued. During early January, 
East Coast and Southwest growers finished picking 
acreage affected by Tropical Storm Gordon and began 
harvesting plants not hurt by the storm. Temperatures 
near freezing produced light frost over the southern 
Peninsula during the last week of January, but caused no 
significant damage to the crop. The cool temperatures 
slowed the spread of disease and aided fruit set and 
sizing in most fields. Growers harvested most of the 
marketable fruit by early February to avoid losses from 
freezing temperatures accompanied by strong winds that 
arrived during the first weekend in February. Freezing 
temperatures again showed up around February 9 causing 
severe damage to some fields in the Southwest and 
Palmetto-Ruskin areas. Some older plants froze from the 
top to about six to eight inches down the bush in locali- 
ties mainly north of Immokalee. Some fields in the 
Palmetto-Ruskin area suffered from ten to twenty-five 
percent loss. No frost formed on plants in Dade County 
due to a light breeze blowing when the cold temperatures 
occurred with some growers running sprinklers to prevent 
damage. Wind breaks protected most East Coast fields 
from frost damage. Young plants in the Palmetto-Ruskin 
and Southwest regions recovered from the leaf burns 
caused by the cold temperatures. However, the plants 
had lower yield prospects due to the increased fruit 
scarring and bloom loss. During the last half of February, 
Palmetto-Ruskin growers made spot resets and com- 
pletely replanted transplants that were killed by the 
freeze, with warm temperatures aiding the recovery of 



9 



plants from the freeze damage in all affected localities. 
Wind-borne sand and strong wind gusts that accompa- 
nied rain storms on February 20 scarred fruit and plant 
leaves, broke some foliage off plants, and increased 
bloom losses around Immokalee and Palmetto-Ruskin, and 
in Dade County. Harvesting was at peak level in Dade 
County during February. Some sand scarred fruit picked 
around Immokalee did not meet grade standards during 
early March. Fruit sets began to appear in oldest fields 
located around Palmetto-Ruskin during early March. 
Quincy area growers started spring crop transplanting 
during the first week of March with about five to ten 
percent of planned acreage killed by freezing tempera- 
tures arriving mid-week. Producers around Oxford fin- 
ished spring crop transplanting by mid-March. Scattered 
rain and nearly normal temperatures during most of 
March improved crop condition in all regions. A very small 
acreage in the Palmetto-Ruskin area suffered hail and 
wind damage near mid-March. Heavy rain delayed some 
transplanting in the Quincy area and some field work 
along the southeastern coast about mid-March. Gadsden 
County producers transplanted about 80 percent of 
planned acreage by the end of March with all fields 
planted by early April. Most of the Quincy acreage 
escaped damage from heavy rains occurring after mid- 
April over the western Panhandle. April showers reduced 
the effectiveness of pesticides and leached fertilizer in 
some Palmetto-Ruskin fields with workers making daily 
spray applications as needed. Picking of the spring crop 
began around Palmetto-Ruskin about mid-April. Southern 
growers delayed some second and third picks and 
northern producers put off first picks due to low markets 
from late April throughout May. Some Palmetto-Ruskin 
producers opened fields to U-Pic harvesting in early May. 
Up to three and a half inches of rain fell over some fields 
in the Quincy area near mid-May causing reduced fruit 
quality. Dade County growers stopped picking by mid- 
May due to the low market. Southwestern producers 
finished commercial harvesting by late May. Growers 
around Quincy started picking the spring crop in late May. 
Palmetto-Ruskin growers made only one pick of several 
fields due to rapid fruit maturation and the low market. 
Most northern producers picked marketable fruit prior to 
the passage of Hurricane Allison in early June. Markets 
improved by early June with some Palmetto-Ruskin 
producers making third picks in some fields. East Coast 
growers finished harvesting about mid-June. Producers in 
the East Coast area by-passed some third picks and 
finished harvesting in late June. Typical summer weather 
of hot temperatures and scattered afternoon showers 
prevailed over northern localities during July. Quincy 
growers completed picking by late July. 



WATERMELONS 

Production during the 1994-95 season totaled 
825 million pounds, 3 percent below the 851 million 
pounds produced during last season. Harvested acreage 
totaled 33,000 acres, down 4,000 acres from the 
previous season. The average yield was 250 cwt per 
acre, up 20 cwt from the 1993-94 season. Value of 
production was $61.8 million, up 7 percent from last 
season. Growers received 7.5 cents per pound, up 0.7 
cents from the previous season. 

Southern counties accounted for 37 percent of 
the production and 24 percent of the harvested acreage. 
Collier County was the largest county in the south and 
number two in the State with over 8 percent of the 
State's harvested acreage. Northern counties accounted 
for 29 percent of the production and 44 percent of the 
harvested acreage. Alachua County was number 1 in the 
north and the number 1 county in the State with over 1 
percent of the State's harvested acreage. Central 
counties had 27 percent of the production and Manatee 
County was the leading county in the central area with 7 
percent of the State's harvested acreage. Western 
counties had 6 percent of the production and 1 2 percent 
of the State's harvested acreage. 

A small acreage for harvest during the fall is 
grown in southern localities and in scattered areas of 
north and central Florida. These melons are harvested In 
October, November, and December depending on the 
weather conditions. This acreage and production is 
included in the spring crop. 

Fall crop plantings began during the summer of 
1 994 around Palmetto-Ruskin and in scattered areas of 
north and central Rorida. The fall harvest was underway 
in the north in early October and started in the Palmetto- 
Ruskin and central areas in mid-October. Fall harvest 
ended in late December. Planting of the spring crop 
began in December in the southwest while Palmetto- 
Ruskin started in mid-January. The early February freeze 
killed all of the west central acreage up at the time and 
lost acreage was replanted. In the southwest, the loss 
was limited arxl some replanting was necessary. Panhan- 
dle planting started in mid-March. Southwest spring crop 
harvest started in late April and Palmetto-Ruskin spring 
harvest started in mid-May. North central harvest started 
in late May and spring crop harvest started in north 
Florida in early June. Harvest ended in the southwest in 
early June; Palmetto-Ruskin was complete in late June; 
and Panhandle, north Florida harvest ended in July.

OTHER CROPS 

Cantaloupes are grown in Florida primarily in the 
spring and summer in the Southwest and North Central 
areas. Some cantaloupes also are grown during the fall 
months in the Southwest and West Central areas. The 
peak harvest period is normally May and June. Much of 
the production is sold through roadside stands and local 
markets. This minor crop is not included in the survey 
program for vegetable and melon statistics. No shipment 
data is available. 

Cauliflower is grown in the North Central and 
West Central areas. Supplies are available from late 
November through early May. Shipment information is 
recorded by the Market News Service. In the 1994-95 
season, there were 16,500 hundredweight (66,000 25- 
pound cartons) shipped out of the State. Shipments were 
down considerably from 23,000 hundredweight in the 
previous year. 

Celery production is located mainly in the Central 
Florida area around Zellwood and in the Everglades, with 
the Everglades area producing the larger share. Trans- 
planting usually starts by early September and harvest 
runs from November through June. Due to the limited 
number of producers growing celery, the Florida Agricul- 
tural Statistics Service has discontinued publishing 
acreage, yield, and price statistics. Shipment information 
is provided by the Market News Service. 

Tropical vegetable production is centered in Dade 
County where available land continues to be a limiting 
factor for all agricultural production. The most common 
tropical vegetables followed by the scientific name, in 
italics, and other names in parentheses are: boniato- 
Ipomea batata (sweet potato); ca\abaza-Cucurbita 
(pumpkin); rr\a\anga-Xanthosoma caracu or Co/ocasi'a 
escu/enta (dasheen, yautia); and cassava-Manihot 
escu/enta (crantz, yucca, tapioca). Boniato, calabaza, 
and malanga constitute the bulk of production. Peak 
production of malanga occurs in February through April. 
Efforts are being made to provide more even supplies 
throughout the year. Miami and the Tampa Bay areas are 
important points of consumption for the Florida produc- 
tion. The supplies shipped out of State are primarily for 
the New York City and Philadelphia areas. 

Collard, turnip, mustard, and other greens are 
grown throughout the State and centered around large 
population areas and in the muck soils of the Everglades 
and Zellwood areas. Supplies are available for local 
consumption throughout the year. Shipments to other 
States were reported from December through early May. 



Shipments totaled 6,500 hundredweight during the 
1994-95 season, down from 19,250 hundredweight a 
year earlier. 

Okra is grown in many areas of the State. Dade 
County produces okra for local use as well as for ship- 
ments to other States. Peak production was in May and 
June with a good supply in October and November. 
Shipments of out-of-State markets during the 1 994-95 
season totaled 51,900 hundredweight. This was down 
from the previous year when shipments totaled 56,700 
hundredweight. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the North 
Central and West Central areas. Supplies are marketed 
primarily at roadside stands and markets for local use, but 
there are several large producers who ship to other 
States. 

Most of the dry onions are produced in southern 
and west central areas of the State. Dry onion shipments 
totaled 8,000 hundredweight during the 1 994-95 season. 

Parsley is available in both the curly and plain 
types. The bulk of the commercial volume shipped to 
other States is produced in the Everglades and Zellwood 
areas. Light supplies sold for local use are available from 
Sarasota, Lake Placid, and other areas. Shipments to 
out-of-State markets totaled 35,240 hundredweight 
(144,000 21 -pound cartons). Most of the shipments 
occurred from November through May. 

Southern peas are grown primarily in the West, 
North, West Central, and Everglades areas of Florida. 
Dade County also produces a considerable amount of 
southern peas. Light supplies are generally available from 
September through December. Heavy movement is 
spread out from November through May. A high percent- 
age of the crop is utilized for processing, though a part of 
the crop is sold through local markets for fresh use. 
Market News Service shipment data for out-of-State 
markets show 6,750 hundredweight for fresh market 
during the 1994-95 season, down 58 percent from the 
previous year. 

Chinese Cabbage is grown primarily on the muck- 
lands In the Everglades area with minor production in the 
Zellwood/West Central areas. Harvest began in October 
and continued through early June. The peak production 
occurred February and March. Shipments for 1994-95 
totaled 163,000 crates {50-pound), down from 184,000 
crates the previous year and 246,000 crates in the 1 992- 
93 crop year.
